The Clipper Race fleet has arrived at the V&A Waterfront Marina in Cape Town in all its splendour having completed the Stormhoek Race to the Cape of Storms from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Join us at Quay 6 today and step on board the Clipper 70 yachts to receive a free personal yacht tour from crew members who have competed in this unique race. The free tours will run daily until Thursday 29 October from 10:00 – 18:00.

Quay 6 and Jetty 2,
Cape Town 8001,
Our twelve Clipper 70s make up the world’s largest fleet of matched design ocean racing yachts. Specially manufactured to take on Mother Nature’s toughest conditions as they circumnavigate the globe, these yachts are built for speed, not comfort.
No previous sailing experience is needed to take part as we provide full training, and up to 40 per cent of our crew members have never sailed before they sign up for the race. The only qualifications participants need is a good level of fitness, to be aged 18 or over and possess a thirst for adventure into the unknown.
The Cape Town Race Village features a wide range of attractions in conjunction with the South African Ocean Festival (http://oceanfestival.co.za/ ). From free public talks from our intrepid adventurers, extreme water polo, paddle boarding and on-the-water display shows, there are plenty of activities guaranteed to get visitors into the spirit of on-the-water adventure.

Want to look the part? This week we have some fantastic clothing prizes up for grabs for the first 50 people that visit the Clipper Race red dome in Cape Town and say OCEAN RACER each day.
Race 3: The Warden Whip to Albany, Western Australia starts on Saturday 31 October at 12:00. Watch the start departure ceremony at the V&A Waterfront before the Parade of Sail by the Boardwalk at 13:45 under the spectacular backdrop of Table Mountain.
